Here is what I want every fat woman to know…
Before I start, I want to address those who may find self-identifying as fat as triggering. I want you to have a lot of love and compassion for yourself.
This message is for anyone who identifies as fat and who is struggling with the size of their body, regardless of what pant size you are or how you relate to the BMI.
Here is what I want every fat woman to know
Here’s what I want you to know:
It’s not fair.
It’s unfair that society doesn’t welcome you and your body. It’s unfair that regular everyday tasks are more challenging such as shopping for clothes or sitting at a restaurant booth, or that airplane seats don’t accommodate your body.
Despite this unfairness, you have a choice. You have a choice to allow these hurdles to stop you from being who you are.
The reason why we suffer from fatphobia is that we decide to let it affect us emotionally.
The only person responsible for your suffering is you and the thoughts you have toward the circumstance.
Fatphobia wins when it prevents you from showing up in the world. The only way to stop that is by taking full responsibility for your emotions.
I share this with you so you can see the possibility of what is on the other side of taking responsibility for how you experience fatphobia.
Acceptance of Fatphobia
Acceptance of fatphobia doesn’t mean that you agree with it. It means that you learn how to manage your mind so that you can stop suffering from living inside a large body.
Changing your thoughts is simple but not easy. It’s simple because all you need is you and awareness of your thoughts. Once you have identified how these thoughts make you feel, the next step is to choose to change your thoughts.
This process can be done alone or via investing in working with a coach. Regardless of how you choose to work on it, knowing it is possible is the most important factor.
The return on investment will be endless. Learning to manage your thoughts and emotions is a tool that can be used in every area of your life. When you break through the limiting beliefs around living in a fat body, you will see all the other areas that are possible for you. That job promotion becomes attainable, handling issues with your boss becomes easy, setting boundaries is a breeze, shopping for clothes is fun, going to the beach is exciting, and walking into a room feeling confident is natural.
Externalized fatphobia is a fact. How you experience it is up to you.
